Woolworths Food for Wildlife Initiative

Our wonderful WIRES member, Rebbecca Synnott, has been contacting stores within the Woolworths Group to begin an amazing Food For Wildlife Initiative.

Below is a list of the participating Woolworths stores, so far. As more stores are approached they will be added here.

Please note: That guidelines for collection vary between each store. 
It is important that individuals and groups do not approach their local store to ask for donations.

Non-Wires members must register their wildlife group with ‘Food for Wildlife’ to participate in the initiative - this is to ensure the scheme remains workable for Woolworths and to optimise the assistance provided to wildlife groups, and wildlife in need. To register your group, please email rebbeccasynnott@gmail.com
